[snip about gparted]

So my question is this - Why, when there is a tool that is so much
more capable, open sourced and freely available, is Yast2 sticking to
using such a brain dead partitioning tool?

Actually, yast uses parted too. Gparted is just the user interface.
Gparted presumably does not have a text-mode which YaST requires.


Um, that wasn't really very clear.

Gparted and YaST both use parted under the covers. Gparted adds a
graphical user interface, YaST adds a graphical _and_ a text-mode
interface.
